Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats

One of the UK’s most prominent post-punk bands released their fourth album ‘The Night Creeper’ in September. Full of flesh-melting riffs, it seems to come straight from the folk horror films of the 1970s. The band was once described by Metal Blade Records as “the original Alice Cooper band jamming in a cell with early Black Sabbath and the Stooges”. Led by Kevin Starrs, the band’s sounds are distinctly British and certainly dark.

Sounds like… Black Sabbath, The Dead Weather, The Horrors, The Cure.

For fans of… classic horror soundtracks and violent heavy metal.
